I need to check to see if I have a crocus peeking through! Aren't they delightful??

So beautiful!!

Shannon said...

We don't have any, yet. I did notice you said "gray of winter" and not "white of winter". Appropriate since we haven't had much "white"!

I am hoping, for the sake of gardening, for a "neat" transition into summer. :o)

I LOVE the textural contrast between the delicate flowers and the woody ground. Beautiful!

I can't believe a crocus is already popping up! I notice one in our area that was barely above the soil! I can't wait for Spring!
